The effects of cancer on siblings: for every hundred children who receive a cancer, hundreds more siblings will begin a battle through cancer a well. Cancer does not discriminate and affects every person in the family. Often times siblings of those children who have been diagnosed with cancer are hurt, confused, and effected during the journey. Our princess Emma’s life changed on October 11th, 2010. She was pulled out of school, gym, play dates and could no longer play with her friends. While Chase was on chemotherapy our family had to be in isolation for months so that we would not transfer a virus to Chase that would land him in the hospital. We traveled every week, sometimes several times a week to Phoenix for doctors appointments, blood tests and blood transfusions. Every month Chase would go into the hospital for 4 days to receive his chemo, with travel time this would amount to 6 or 7 days of time in the hospital, at Ronald McDonald House or in a hotel room for Emma. Once Chase finished his chemotherapy Emma had her life uprooted yet again to move to Houston for Chase’s radiation treatment. Our family motto was “4 in 4 out”. We were going into this as a family of 4 and we were going to win a family of 4. She has grown up way to much and knows has seen more and experienced more than any 4 year old should ever try and comprehend. We continue to work with Emma to let her know she is equally as important and loved as we fight through this journey.
